You can feel it in their air. The fog's burning off a little earlier. The temperature is warming up a few degrees. The kids are back in school.
Can Autumn be Far Off?
The Autumnal Equinox is approaching. We don't do leaf spectaculars like they do in New England, but still thoughts turn to Autumn foods as in Autumn Gatherings: Casual Food to Enjoy With Family and Friends or Eat Feed Autumn Winter: 30 Ways to Celebrate When the Mercury Drops.
Will the Mercury Drop?
The latest Old Farmer’s Almanac has just hit the newsstands and will soon be heading for a library near you. I won't spoil the suspense.
Gathering of the Gourds
Of course, if you live on this side of the hill the turning season means one big thing...the Pumpkin Festival! If the craft booths inspire you we have books that may help you with projects of your own like Mary Engelbreit’s Autumn Craft Book, and while you're cooking or crafting why not enjoy Vivaldi's Four Seasons?
Joe Toschik is a Public Services Librarian at Half Moon Bay Library who is looking forward to judging the Pumpkin Festival Costume Contest right here in the Library parking lot.
